It’s no surprise that Princess Diana’s daughters-in-law often channel her iconic style. The late Princess of Wales was undeniably stylish, chic, and put-together. I mean, we all probably attempt to copy the late princess occasionally.
While Princess Di would occasionally opt for a trendy bubble skirt or a bold blue eyeliner, most of her fashion go-to’s featured timeless styles that are still loved today. We’ve recently noticed that both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have followed suit by wearing one style in particular on repeat—the shirtdress.
The look can take slightly different forms like Middleton’s summer and winter versions of the look, or Markle’s more structured, blazer-inspired tendencies, but the basics of the style still apply.
The beauty of a shirtdress or jacket is its ability to look undeniably put together while effortlessly chic at the same time. From business meetings to Sunday brunch, a shirtdress can be the perfect pick.
